History by Dylan, Vintage Craft Artist
Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
Founder of History by Dylan, Dylan Ryu creates one-of-a kind bags by using vintage decorations to craft and personalize aged designer bags. While her bags are sold at luxury select shops such as the 10 Corso Como or Boon the Shop, they are also praised for its artistry and showcased in galleries or featured exhibitions as well. In 2015, she moved her studio and home to an old mansion near Namsan from Cheongdam-dong, where she had long been dwelling. As a vintage craft artist, she crosses the boundaries of commercial and noncommercial fields and just like herself, the vintage objects and furnitures of different ages seamlessly blend with each other inside her nest. Here we trace back the time of Dylan’s home and belongings as she unwraps her story.
